MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell said he won’t join other major companies in boycotting Tucker Carlson’s prime-time show on Fox News.

“MyPillow is not changing its advertising. I make all my advertising decisions based on what is best for my customers and my employees,” Lindell said in a statement provided to Newsweek. “MyPillow believes all lives matter and values all our employees and customers, treating them like family.”

T-Mobile, Walt Disney Company, Papa John’s, and Poshmark all announced last week that they will no longer place advertisements on Carlson’s show, Deadline first reported.

“We haven’t run ads on Tucker Carlson Tonight since early May and have canceled all future placements. We will continue to support those who stand against racial injustice,” T-Mobile wrote on Twitter.

Papa John’s, whose founder was booted from the company in 2018 for using a racial slur, confirmed with The New York Times that it would stop advertising on opinion shows.

The advertising boycott comes in response to Carlson’s scathing criticism of the Black Lives Matter movement during his Monday night monologue.

“It tells you that Black Lives Matter is in fact a political party, maybe the strongest political party in the United States as of tonight,” said Carlson, mocking several prominent Democrats in Minnesota throughout his remarks.

He concluded the 25-minute monologue by claiming the “moment we are living through” has “very little to do with black lives.”

“What is going on? What is this about? Even the outlines are blurry at this point, but we know this: no matter what they tell you, it has very little to do with black lives. If only it did. If Democratic leaders cared about saving the lives of black people, and they should, they wouldn’t ignore the murders of thousands of young black men in their cities every year,” said Carlson.

Carlson survived a similar advertising boycott in 2018 when 20 companies pulled their ads from his show.

Despite the outcry from corporate America, Carlson – and Fox News Channel more broadly – continues to dominate in ratings. Among the three major cable news networks, Fox News had the five most-watched shows in May.

Hannity finished in first place overall with a nightly audience of 4.231 million viewers, followed by Tucker Carlson Tonight with 4.192 million viewers, The Five with 3.734 million viewers, The Ingraham Angle with 3.485 million viewers, and Special Report with Bret Baier at 3.085 million viewers.

    I mean Papa Johns used a racism hoax to oust founder John Schattner, so I closed my accounts with them after that. HR department literally gave him a prepared statement that included examples of slurs, and then the board used this as a pretext to fire him when he read them aloud.

    Love all my pillows I have bought through years for myself or for gifts. Great products, great service…about to purchase sheets and probably another set of toppers while on sale. Topper is wonderful. I have split king bed so bought 2–. Go Mike. We are watching

  3. Grammysam

    I want a list of all of the former advertisers for the Tucker Carlson show, so we can ALL BOYCOTT THEM. IF THEY ARE ALIGNING THEMSELVES WITH THE DEMOSOCIALIST COMMUNISTS AND THE SOROS/CLINTON/OBAMA MAFIA MACHINE, I WANT THE WORLD TO BOYCOTT ALL OF THEM!

    1. Ron Welch

      Yes, we need the list of these craven appeasers to these anarcharists, fascists and communists. BTW, I see they apparently have not pulled down the statue of Lenin in Seattle. It was him, a tyrant murderer, that called the duped Bolsheviks of his day, “useful idiots”.

  4. Charlotte Biernacki

    Thank the Lord somebody will stand up for what is Right. God bless u 2 men. Please don’t stop. America needs you.

    That’s because Mike Lindell is a wise conservative!

  6. Tracy Wilson

    I’ll be buying a my pillow soon! Keep up the good work Mike and Tucker! All lives matter!

  7. Deplorable Bay Stater

    It’s great to see that someone still has the backbone to stand up to the PC crowd and do what’s right. I’ll add all of the other companies mentioned to my list of those I refuse to do business with.

  8. Mike Johnson

    I know where I’m getting my next pillow…Well done Mike Lindell!
